The above beta advisory applies to using this feature with Cloud Run for Anthos on Google Cloud.
Cloud Monitoring provides Cloud Run performance monitoring, metrics, and uptime checks, along with alerts to send notifications when certain metric thresholds are exceeded. Google Cloud's operations suite pricing applies, which means there is no charge for metrics on the fully managed version of Cloud Run. Note that you can also use Cloud Monitoring custom metrics.
Cloud Run is automatically integrated with Cloud Monitoring with no setup or configuration required. This means that metrics of your Cloud Run services are captured automatically when they are running.
You can view metrics either in Cloud Monitoring or in the Cloud Run page in the console. Cloud Monitoring provides more charting and filtering options.
The resource type differs for Cloud Run (fully managed) and Cloud Run for Anthos on Google Cloud:
For Cloud Run (fully managed) the monitoring resource name is "Cloud Run Revision" (
For Cloud Run for Anthos on Google Cloud the monitoring resource name is "Cloud Run on GKE Revision" (
